Interleukin 8 (IL8 or CXCL8), a member of the ELR+ CXC chemokine family, is a 8.4 kDa polypeptide that forms homodimers in vivo. IL8 is secreted by several types of cells: fibroblasts, monocytes, macrophages and endothelial cells, among many others, in response to inflammatory stimuli. It is a chemoattractant and activator for neutrophils, directing them from periferal blood to the site of inflammation. It is also a potent angiogenic factor promoting endothelial and epithelial migration and proliferation in several cancers, and is associated with metastasis. It signals through two specific G protein-coupled receptors, CXCR1 and CXCR2, sharing ~77% identity.

AlphaLISA technology allows the detection of molecules of interest in a no-wash, highly sensitive, quantitative assay. In an AlphaLISA assay, a biotinylated anti-analyte antibody binds to the Streptavidin-coated Donor beads while another anti-analyte antibody is conjugated to AlphaLISA Acceptor beads. In the presence of the analyte, the beads come into close proximity. The excitation of the Donor beads causes the release of singlet oxygen molecules that triggers a cascade of energy transfer in the Acceptor beads, resulting in a sharp peak of light emission at 615 nm.
